So, we have been here a few more days with nothing much happening. Then, while Lexx and Ash are off doing something on the other side of the depot, Sresaka, Widget, and I track down Rennie (I cannot even remember why!); we find him talking to another mechanic, staring at a datapad, looking worried. Not having much to do until the ship gets the rest of our new weapon installed, we ask what is up. Ysoki are missing! Six went out last night and did not return. Their approximate location was known; Rennie was just needing to get some others to go out and check on the situation. We offered to go. Luckily the others were back so we could go as a group.
Bad, bad things! We found their truck, right where is was supposed to be. There were two ysoki and a few khefak, all dead by the vehicle. The ship they were stripping parts from was sitting there, mostly intact. Fortunately, we could hear the weak cries of at least one hiding inside the ship. Turns out three made it inside. One is still missing. And it wasn’t the khefak that killed the others. It’s a rivener. . . .
