The Lane Hacker Internal Comm Channel - Howard10 - 11-21-2010

Today's been busy to say the least. After spending the early portions of the day baiting Bounty Hunters with Ms. Mai, I linked up with the bosses for some group havoc in California. Going off sketchy memory, I recall LH~Payback, Phate, Mr.Sanguinetti, Eric.Knox, Brutus.Clay and Konstantine.Romanos being present (not to mention the various pick-up transports that scooped up looted goods). Later on we also picked up an Outcast called E-Charos.

The day started well, with a few traders being extorted in Magellan before I turned up. When I joined the fun on the California Minor to Magellan trade lane, we caught a smuggler called Charos-X1. He was full to the brim with Artifacts, so Brutus told him to empty his bay. This command was not obeyed, so his bay was forcibly vacated instead. While Brutus and Payback awaited a transport pickup, I went to look for mercenary-magnet Phaos, who had been broadcasting on system comms. During this time, an IND transport gave the previous group the slip, and an Outcast shot up and destroyed all the floating cargo we'd just liberated.

Given I was ahead of the others moving towards Planet Mojave, I headed the IND trader off (who as it happens, was also a smuggler). It was a Whale of some description, full of Blood Diamonds. Comm transcription below (with most of the group comms and background static cut out).

[20.11.2010 21:59:00] [IND]Invisible.Hand: close one, but hey
[20.11.2010 21:59:06] [IND]Invisible.Hand: had to try, eh

[20.11.2010 21:59:12] LH~Dialectius: I know, I know.
[20.11.2010 21:59:16] LH~Dialectius: Was some good sport.
[20.11.2010 21:59:21] [IND]Invisible.Hand: yes, but fair is fair
[20.11.2010 21:59:25] [IND]Invisible.Hand: price?

[20.11.2010 21:59:36] LH~Dialectius: But you lost at the end o' the day. Teamwork trumps greedy corporates, ey?
[20.11.2010 21:59:40] [IND]Invisible.Hand: true
[20.11.2010 21:59:54] [IND]Invisible.Hand: now then

[20.11.2010 21:59:55] LH~Dialectius: And my friends here will be naming the terms. Not my place to do so.
[20.11.2010 22:00:03] [IND]Invisible.Hand: let me get my cheque book
[20.11.2010 22:00:09] LH~Dialectius: So, your life lies in their hands, so to speak.
[20.11.2010 22:00:27] [IND]Invisible.Hand: well in my pen stroke and my bank account, to be technical
[20.11.2010 22:00:36] [IND]Invisible.Hand: tea gentlemen?

[20.11.2010 22:00:42] Eric.Knox:..: Good day
[20.11.2010 22:00:49] LH~Dialectius: I'd rather not. Not without a tester anyway.
[20.11.2010 22:00:54] Eric.Knox:..: Is your escape pod ready, flunky?
[20.11.2010 22:00:56] [IND]Invisible.Hand: *drinks tea*
[20.11.2010 22:01:00] LH~Dialectius: I wouldn't trust you not to put cyanide in it
[20.11.2010 22:01:18] LH~Dialectius: As a matter of a fact, I wouldn't trust you as far as I could throw your ship, unassisted.

[20.11.2010 22:01:23] Eric.Knox:..: I'm here to do a favour to Liberty Rogues
[20.11.2010 22:01:29] [IND]Invisible.Hand: well now, I am more than happy to help you throw it
[20.11.2010 22:01:34] Konstantine.Romanos.: allright, let's collect
[20.11.2010 22:01:39] LH~Dialectius: Bounty, ey?
[20.11.2010 22:01:45] [IND]Invisible.Hand: price?
[20.11.2010 22:01:58] [IND]Invisible.Hand: And how much will this cost me, gentlemen?

[20.11.2010 22:02:30] Eric.Knox:..: Let's send him to his cargo pod
[20.11.2010 22:02:38] Konstantine.Romanos.: allright, fire!
[20.11.2010 22:02:40] Death: [IND]Invisible.Hand was put out of action by Konstantine.Romanos. (Gun).
After it was ruptured by Romanos and Knox, a pick-up transport flew by and tractored the goods. Turned out a Navy kill-team had been stalking us though, and butchered Payback while we were away. Following fight went back, quickly and a general retreat was called. All of our people (save Payback) got away safely. The Outcast managed to get himself cut off however, after a Navy gunboat blocked the gate. I chose to jump back and guide him to the Cortez jump hole and then to Montezuma. The sniffer got shot up at the Cortez jump hole and exploded. I burned it back to base as quick as possible.

On returning home, I wrote a sabotage script and fed it into all the proxy servers I set up yesterday. They're now bombarding the neural-net home site of a Brayden B. Babcock with Rhienlandic 419 scams, inappropriate images and relentless spam. All in a days work really. Just havin' a bit of fun.

Ugh. Ship trouble has kept me grounded and preoccupied the past couple of days, but I do have some intel to report. This information's a few days old, but as you'll see it's still a matter of concern. I spotted the LNF toady Jenna.Strawberry in the Jersey Debris Field and flew in for a closer look. She was preoccupied with a wing of Rogues, most of which were already destroyed by the time I got close enough for a visual. - Target after destroying Rogue wing

I didn't stick around long enough for her to notice me, but I still wanted scans of her hold. Luckily I have an advanced cargo scanner installed, so I retreated out of weapon range and perused her LNF boat. - Target's cargo hold. filled with prisoners

She had representatives from almost every outlaw group in Liberty, and even a few Bretonians. Worst of all are the captured Hackers; I would suggest we liberate them, but scanning her weapons loadout makes it clear what a difficult task that would be. - Target's armament, part 1

Typical VHF configuration, right? Not quite. - Target's armament, part 2

CODENAME weapons, a matched pair. And nothing I recognize from our armory. I took a more detailed scan to see what they were capable of... and flew a little further away when I realized any one of the pair would split my Dagger's hull in a single shot. - Target's ID and misc. hardware

I checked her ID just to be sure, noting the expensive additional armor.

I've caught her radio chatter in New York in the past, so it seems like she mostly operates around there. The Junkers assure me the only thing broken in my ship is the 'check engine' light, so I'm taking another peek around Liberty space. terminated...

Good day operatives, I'll need your help in order to meet with LSF agent known as Sonya Mosby.

Mr.Sanguinetti I need your technical expertise. I need you to adjust two Holo-tainment Bands to Radio Free Liberty frequency. When the time comes I'll need you to block all other incoming frequencies so the meeting there can be done without interruptions.

Mr.Clay you will be presented with the ticket for civilian freighter transporting passengers from Manhattan to Thunder Bay Depot in Ontario. Your mission will be to meet Sonya Mosby aboard the freighter and present her with the envelop containing a password which she will use in the Thunder Bay depot bar while talking to bartender. The password you're about to give her will be told to you by Elektra King.

Miss King, you will fly to Thunder bay depot and give bartender instructions where he will send Sonya Mosby once she uses the password. Mr.Sanguinetti will present you with specially tuned Holo-tainment Band which you will give to Miss Mosby. Once she is plugged in, your mission is to leave her the returning ticket to Manhattan and to disappear from that base.

Thank you. Debriefing will set place on Mactan base. Have a nice day operatives. terminated...

Elektra leans back in her chair.
I haven't left a message here for a while, could be a good time to start again. data...

Thought for the day: Everyone needs believe in something. I believe I'll have another drink.

Another eventful evening, I undocked and immediately found myself in a fight with a Mandalorian who decided to lure us into the worst trap I've ever seen in my life.

The "trap" turned out to be a lonely Navy pilot, which was a feeble attempt to stop the four of us.

Sure we eventually got overrun by Bounty Hunter gunboats and had to leave, but thats not important. Right? terminated...

Good day everyone, I have couple of things to report. As Miss King already told we met an Mandalorian soon as we came out of the base, shooting on Corporate Calamity which was piloted by Mr.Clay.

We managed to drive him away, but he made it out of system alive. He is skilled so be careful, but he is skilled in running from what I have seen, fighting skills couldn't be observed at this situation. In any case I strongly advise to avoid fights when there is a swarm of these mercenaries.

He leaded us into "trap" where 3 navy ships were destroyed before swarms of bounty hunters came where we had to retreat. I managed to took one navy down before I docked at Mactan.

I've checked the USI system as I usually do while I was docked and sent a transmission to one known as Crimson.Reaver so we can arrange a meeting which will determine status of our business relationship. I must say he was very professional and easy to talk to. I'll upload a transcript of conversation.

Well, today was a bit of a downer really. Took off from Mactan, and on passing Freeport 4, ran afoul of the Navy Upholder Cpt.Jack.Traveler. Given that I was actually stalking an Interspace transport at the time, I proceeded to outrun him through Magellan and California. I was going to swing by Ontario to refuel when he appeared again. Deciding that I could take a bomber in my light fighter (and hell, not a chance I was going to drag a hostile bomber home), I stopped to fight. At which point all my onboards went nuts...

Target comm, navigational equipment, onboard steering, power balance and shield capacitors had a mean system lag of about 11%, in additional to extra data loss. I was lucky the whole thing didn't seize up and freeze me in space, to be honest. Anyway, said moron attempted to open fire and fire a Supernova at me without saying a word. I got away with minor scrape-damage to my shield and nothing more.

[18.12.2010 17:29:00] Dialectius: Wonderful. Two of them.
[18.12.2010 17:29:11] Dialectius: To be honest, I'm doing nothing you say.
[18.12.2010 17:29:19] Dialectius: Not after the way this idiot reacted.

[18.12.2010 17:29:45] [LN]-David.Ripper: Just once it'd be nice you know.... I've got bigger fish to fry.
[18.12.2010 17:29:45] Dialectius: It's not nice being shot at without a word, you know that?

[18.12.2010 17:30:48] [LN]-David.Ripper: You're a hacker, what did you expect? Tea and a chat?
[18.12.2010 17:31:13] Dialectius: Nope. But I did expect the courtesy of being told he was going to attempt to do something other than flail in circles and drool.
[18.12.2010 17:31:46] Dialectius: You mentioned you had bigger fish to fry.
[18.12.2010 17:32:02] Dialectius: Let me improve the genepool by frying this one, while you get lost and do what you have to.

[18.12.2010 17:32:14] [LN]-David.Ripper: *Raises an eyebrow.* That's going to happen.
[18.12.2010 17:32:31] [LN]-David.Ripper: You can handle this Traveler?
[18.12.2010 17:32:42] Dialectius: Sure he can.

[18.12.2010 17:36:59] Dialectius: Quite so.
[18.12.2010 17:40:07] [LN]-Matt.Falconer: I think Traveler can handle it.

[18.12.2010 17:52:40] [LN]-Matt.Falconer: I think it would be in this situation.

[18.12.2010 17:57:35] Cpt.Jack.Traveler: we're the navy
[18.12.2010 17:57:38] [LN]-Matt.Falconer: Not until you're gone
[18.12.2010 17:57:43] Adam.Roberts: I see.
[18.12.2010 17:58:07] [LN]-Matt.Falconer: OOPS
[18.12.2010 17:58:14] [LN]-Matt.Falconer: I shot you
[18.12.2010 17:58:16] Dialectius: Huh. That'll teach me to talk and fly at once.
After a while, my malfunctioning equipment got the better of me, and a lucky shot from the fighter sheared the front of my Falchion off. I ejected, and was snatched up by a Rogue patrol who'd been circling, but keeping their distance from the fight themselves. Just as well they were there. Wouldn't want to have started a precedent regarding us and prisons. I hear that later on a DSE cleanup crew turned up to salvage the 80% of my ship that was intact, and tow it off for R&D. Those bastard Rogues who saved me chased them off and sold my ship back to me. Heh, they're businessmen, I'll give them that. Got a shuttle back from Alcatraz to Mactan. The Falchion is in Vespucci undergoing repairs however.

Given that I had nothing else to do for the evening, using the Los Angeles phonebook, I picked Caal C. Cabaniss, then trawled the Neural Net for her profile address. It's now being bombarded with midget porn by 300 zombie servers. That's DDoS with style!

The Lane Hacker Internal Comm Channel - Elektra King - 12-19-2010 data...

Thought for the day: Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

Sanguinetti asked me to help him transfer his freighter "Someone Else's Problem" from Mactan to Cochrane. I've not seen him much for a few months so I was eager to oblige. After the successful transfer we decided we might have a go at taking down a TF7 ship. Unfortunately it jumped to New York before we could locate it.

We decided instead to head to Colorado, in hope of intercepting two possible targets heading from Shikoku. One of the targets did eventually arrive as expected but we were disheartened upon it's arrival to find a Spatial rather than a cargo laden transport. While Sang was dispatching the Super-Heavy Fighter I stopped an Interspace transport carrying tourists to denver. I was slightly puzzled by the pilots Maltese accent, I guess Interspace will hire anyone.

[Image: carlo.png]

Elektra: Hold up there
Elektra: There's a good boy.

Carlo.Fibonacci: Bongiorno
Elektra: Interspace is it?
Carlo.Fibonacci: si
Elektra: Got an interspace one here.
Elektra: Well that just won't do.
Elektra: That won't do at all

Carlo.Fibonacci: ???
Elektra: That's an odd transport for an Interspace employee I must say.
Elektra: I wonder if my colleague here agree's with me.

Mr_Sanguinetti: I absolutely do.
Mr_Sanguinetti: *whispers* on what, I was busy with that spatial...
Carlo.Fibonacci: scusi ma i don't understand english very well
Elektra: Thats ok, we can make this simple for you.
Elektra: We aren't fans of Interspace, as I'm sure you've guessed.
Elektra: Infact, there's nothing we hate -more- than Interspace Commerce

Carlo.Fibonacci: ma, i just do trade
Elektra: For the most part.
Elektra: Oh it's nothing against you Mr Fibonacci.
Elektra: I'm sure you're a wonderful man.

Carlo.Fibonacci: scusi but i have just 135000
Elektra: But we can't allow the company you work for to make such illicit gains from the innocent people of Liberty.
Elektra: Trust me, we don't want your money.
Elektra: Now, this is what is going to happen.

Mr_Sanguinetti: We don't accept contributions from Interspace employees.
Carlo.Fibonacci: so?
Elektra: Those vacationers, are going to be dropped out of that hold of yours. So that we can get one of our transports to redistribute them.
Elektra: They will be much happier when we have taken care of them.
Elektra: And then, you are going to turn around and go back the way you came.

Carlo.Fibonacci: drop tourists in space? you're really cruel
Elektra: I'm sure Interspace has far more evil plans for them than we could possibly dream of.
Mr_Sanguinetti: Their escape-pods will sustain them until the rescue unit arrives.
Elektra: Also, the last point. This one is optional.
Elektra: When you get back.
Elektra: Quit your job for me.

Carlo.Fibonacci: i've no plans about anyone
Elektra: Not you. But the company you work for.
Mr_Sanguinetti: Now Mr flunky, you wouldn't want us to discombobulate that ship closing them off from their freedom do you?
Mr_Sanguinetti: It could endangre them, and also the crew.
Carlo.Fibonacci: if i could i change ID, too much problems with it
Elektra: We're here to save them, Liberty, and yourself from the foul corporation that owns that ship of yours.
Mr_Sanguinetti: If we can get you to leave the clutches of the evil IC, we did our job well.
Elektra: As I said. You can stay with Interspace if you like. It was a recommendation.
Elektra: By the time you've flown back. We will be long gone.

Carlo.Fibonacci: i don't understand all what you said, sorry
Carlo.Fibonacci: speak, simply , please
Mr_Sanguinetti: Don't worry about that. Elektra, you should go for a transport.
Elektra: Ok, you can deal with him.
Elektra: I'll be back.

I returned to find Sanguinetti under attack by the transport. Needless to say I intervened.

LH~Ageira's.Bane: I'm back.
Mr_Sanguinetti: and the rescue team is here...
LH~Ageira's.Bane: Oh dear. What happened here.
LH~Ageira's.Bane: Looks like I better help.

Death: Carlo.Fibonacci was put out of action by LH~Ageira's.Bane (Gun).
LH~Ageira's.Bane: I should have got a bigger transport
LH~Ageira's.Bane: But I like this one.

Mr_Sanguinetti: Well, such happens.
LH~Ageira's.Bane: Right, I'll drop these off at Leiden for transfer later.
Mr_Sanguinetti: That's a war we fight. Civilian casualties are sad but necesairy.
Mr_Sanguinetti: All right. I'm taking a break. That was a long chat with that fellow...

LH~Ageira's.Bane: Ok, nice seeing you again.

We make quite the team. terminated...

Hello, I thought I should share a couple of Brutus's statements.

Do you think the Outcasts are paying Mandalorian Mercs? I'd say they are.

This is from a Cardamine run. The convoy itself was far ahead. The foolish attacker was demolished.

And this is the part where the Lane Hackers & co. remind the proud Bretonia that their lobsters aren't invincible.
[Image: th_screen718.jpg]

Few days ago, I came across an IDF marked convoy - seemed to be from Gallia - with Tobacco and Wine. The transports collided with planet Gunnison and their escort fighter was destroyed by the Liberty Navy. I salvaged whatever was left of him, including a few good bottles.
