Badass Space Dragon 2.0 - Round 3 - Ship Local

Just to be clear: I am being charged b25.0 for Graham Clackington’s time?

Richard “Racehorse” Haynes is retained by the Polesotechnic league. For him to accept anything from Unizone, even a keychain, would be unethical. Indeed, Unizone merely suggesting Mr Haynes was offered money by Unizone would generate a tort in its own right.

From my perspective Unizone has deprived me of b55.0. I will seek other avenues of redress.

Still, this exchange has been worthwhile, as it has publicly displayed how Unizone treats its "partners."

Thank you for the key chain. I am certain Azdell will find it a useful focus for his next meditation.

So, Cutter S. Squamata got his special package from Unizone?

A care package, we hope.

Also, whilst I wouldn’t normally quibble with the fine folks of Unizone @patrace I appear to have been charged twice for my mission fee. I didn’t pay for the mission on credit - as I made clear at the time that came from my cash funds, whereas the upgrades were on interest free credit.

This is in line with the stated order of payment as above.

  1. Mission Fee
  2. Upgrades & Repairs
    etc.

I look forward to receiving a b10 credit to my account and continuing my mutually beneficial arrangement with Unizone.

Don’cha mean “insiders”, Cap’n? I hear they call 'em “insiders” round these parts.

If ya ask me (an’ ya didn’t) insiders get pretty rough treatment. I know if I’ve got any insiders, it’s ‘cause I’m busy digestin’ 'em.

How come ‘Priceless Artifacts’ come with a fee of b50?

Sounds like they’re very clearly priced.

Who expects couriers to buy the things they’re contracted to deliver?

How about nothing up front, but b75 on delivery?
