Kloh mused over the plan and nodded in silent agreement and then voiced it.
We are what we are. We wont even be bluffing for the most part. Fresh off a job, cocky with the spoils and looking for more work and partners in crime. Recruiting for own crew will have to be done in the shadows. A big outfit wont like the idea of us skinning from their school but there is sure to be plenty of disgruntled employees looking for a more lucrative gig. We gotta be tight lipped about Nym. He' sure to be to ground and trying to stay that. One whiff someone's on the look for him and he'll be ghost quick.
Shanosuke - would Knowledge/Streetwise work considering that we're dealing with pirates?
Kloh plotted a course for one of the many public ports as the others planned and added on.
Muscle, intel, scouts...any of those would be helpful but we cant be too aggressive with recruitment or we'll likely get some very unwanted attention from any local bosses. Plus we don't want to be outnumbered in our own crew...
The Nautolan paused to verify the landing clearance and destination.
Still, having a second ship crewed out will be wizard. Lets just be selective and keep our heads clear in our dealings.
His webbed fingers worked the controls and guided the Slave of Sojourn in.
"And now I get to take another cantina trip." Jaira sounds less than thrilled with the prospect.
"We will keep an out for potential recruits, which will be vetted by me, it's my ship they will be crewing, and listen for any rumors of Nym. If you suspect something that needs to be moved on quickly, just mention Gerik over the com. That way if someone overhears or taps our com, they won't be tipped off. Then we can meet up. Mention Gerik being angry if we need to pull, or have been made, okay. Let's be about it."
Venkru shrugs for a second, fine with leaving his girl and her cub back on the ship.
"Don't need them to talk up how the job paid well but the spoils were even better."
Looks over the crew....
"We could split up and comm-link in..." Points to his helmet.
"Comm-link range is not great, but the ship is set to receive, record and relay all transmissions from all of our comm-links, giving us better range. When you go somewhere just let us know which hole your crawling into, and whoever spots some blaster-bait first can let the others know to come on and have a look."
You all dock at the Wayson (Made up name by me) The port is one where much of the folks walking around are from all across the galaxy. Genosians are about but not in the number you would expect to see.
Upon exiting the main hanger, you see a very lively cantina.
The bouncer looks green. He is a Weequay and his face is prettier than most you've seen in the fields and his arms and legs are a big too scrany. His firearm is nice though. A deluxe DH17 Blaster Carbine modified too. He also has a vibroknuckler too. If he landed a hit with that thing it could easily shatter someone's jaw.
As far as the cantina goes, it is a lively place where local and galactic sporting events can be seen and bet on.
You do see a good number of shady folks though. Anything in particular you are looking for?
Kloh couldn't help but smile at both the sight of the cantina and Venkru's outlook on their expedition... only a Mandelorian would think of walking into a cesspool like this undercover as R&R...let the fun begin...
Ordering some drinks, the Nautolan looked around for an open table to start with... and anyone looking bugeyed at us...
Jaira sits down and starts reveiwing something on a minicomp while subtly looking around.
In response to kloh, "Honestly, I only ever needed legit people before. Finding those is quite different. I'll probably go check the merc units after a drink and the inventory, I know their kind. I'll leave you guys to deal with finding those in your line of work."
sorry, been out of contact. Jaira is normally doing legit work, or at least not asking questions, so finding pirate material is not quite what she is used to.
Venkru checks the area again looking over the staff and the bartender again, trying to see who maybe skimming a little take home off the top.
"Not the least in a rush, we left a bunch of cages empty in that jailbreak and even with a bunch of information on each one we elected not to include any of them. So recruits have got to be better than what we have passed over before."
looks at the game....
"Maybe that guy on the shattered stars, he appears agile and athletic."
Having had the time to look over the cantina's patrons, it is pretty clear the "bouncer" could handle any of these miscreants if a brawl broke out. The scenery here is too tame and way too quiet for the kind of pub you'd hoped it would have been. Mostly tradesmen and other honest sorts.
Kloh stretched out and laced his webbed fingers behind his head.
Man this joint is lame. We arent gonna find any thugs or hustlers here. You might find some legit personnel though Jaira but will they have the stomach for our line of work? If you want some real crack shots or space jockeys we're gonna have to hit the streets for a seedier establishment.
"Either the owner is well connected in the industrial-millitary complex or is paying a hefty sum to the riff raff to keep out the riff-raff. Someone want to see who or what the bouncer uses as a panic button? If legit authorities respond or if local business-men make an appearance?"
"I am not suggesting we make trouble, just thinking of asking."
Smiles at Kloh....
It has been Venkru's experience that such a place is peaceable only due to some threat of force.....
sorry for my absence, busy and the office lost internet so no chance to find another connection.
Jaira eyes the others, "Not every legit person is a weakling you know. It isn't exactly common for me to get into the not so legitimate side of things and you can't call me a weakling. Well you might if you wanted to die, but that's beside the point. Venkru, I'm headed to hit some merc hangouts, let me be well clear before you go ruffling feathers, that way I can bail you out if I need to. Though you better not need me to bail you out."
Jaira will go find some mercs, bodyguards, mechanics, techies, and others of the sort she normally deals with. She will see about finding some connections preferably ones that she knows.
