We were so close to leaving Haspis 3 thst I could almost smell the EZbake oven catching on fire in the maintenance tunnels. We had gone back to the Telia village to provide them with the story of our hunt and victory over the black dragon. We celebrated, and eventually opened the sealed box. It contains 100,000 credits in unmarked investment bonds. And a smaller colder box. It contained five silver vials marked with IDs similar to that of the dead dragon. Well, we maybe can’t use them, but I’m sure the Telia (or the dead dragon) can’t use them either.
We couldn’t convince Sprocket to leave with us, but we took back a message to any family he has left. After a whirlwind patch job of our ship, we said goodbye and left the planet surface.
Only to catch a signal about 250km west of the village. From a volcano. 273.1 THz. So we climb out, once again hoping Brock and I-9 can handle the ship while we are gone, to check the source of the signal. Because of course we did. Then I got zapped….
