Short Story: The Nar Shaddaa Job
The Ascension secured its survival, defeating the Zakuulian General who sought their destruction. But the battle had been costly - very costly in terms of material and men. Lacking an industrial or financial base of its own, those damages were not replaceable in any reasonable fashion. Certainly not without accruing unsustainable debts or enduring unreasonable weaknesses. The Void Bringer and Red Horizon required repair, they required a safe port to do it in and the men of all the ships required payment.
As such, Apprentice Thermador Hyrum Victus Decados the fourth set about to find a winning strategy. When every projection showed that the wealth required could not be gained through reasonable methods, a new plan had to be formed. An audacious plan to rob the richest powers in the galaxy without their ever knowing it, a plan relying on nanosecond timing, on the greed of the universe and the technical savvy of the Agency.
Over the next three weeks, players will be embarking on an exciting new Short Story in which the Imperial Ascension will be infiltrating the Nar Shaddaa Stock Exchange (NSSE) to help us gain financial independence. All of the content for this Short Story is being written by Thermador in conjunction with the Leadership Team. We are super excited about our first player-run story in the guild!
