After a blissful day and night on Raxus Secundus with Ahdi Dar on the Woenid Nexus
, you both parted ways to return to your respective work. How were those last moments, Ladro? Did you make any arrangements to meet at a future date anywhere, or leave it up to fate?
picked up a series of jobs that brought you back to the Inner Rim. It's been a month since you drug Squall's spiced-up self off Lianna. Ze's slowly worked zir way back from the brink, but keeps to zirself more now. Ze seems embarrassed of having to have been saved by you and Jojee. How are you handled that?
Leeadra's been taking night shifts and keeping to herself. She's put everyone at arm's length and kept it that way for weeks now. Jojee's worried about her. Jojee's been hanging around in your shuttle lately. Why is that?
Hosk has been pretty happy since Raxus Secundus, the tryst with Jaleena seemed to have given him a new lease on life. He's still grumpy to the crew, but around you, he's cracked a few jokes and been working on a new craft project. Has he told you anything about it?
We pick up with the Libation
heading down the Hydian Way for Rutan 5. Your hold is completely filled with water. Seesk rigged up the space as a single water tank for this job. It's quite a feat of engineering, and sure, Squall helped a bit, but this is Seesk's pride and joy.
The only water supply for a small colony of Rutanians
on Rutan 5 has become contaminated somehow with a weird sludge that makes anyone who drinks the water sick. Filtering and other decontamination methods that are available don’t seem to help. While the colony has some water reserves, they're currently shipping water in to keep those reserves, well, in reserve.
