A NEW GOLD RUSH
A new form of fuel has been discovered within the clouds of various nebulas and utilized for space travel bringing a rush for dominance over the budding industry. Throughout the galaxy, a number of mining operations have sprung up to harvest and refine this new fuel.
The heavy debris, radioactivity, and storms within the nebulas force mining operations to exist only on the outer edges leaving the operations exposed with mass amounts of very precious material.
AN ARMY OF MARAUDERS
This rush to harvest fuel has lead to massive collaborations of corsairs that patrol the galaxy looking for potential mines to raid. Once a scout has found a mining operation, the group will warp waves of ships to its location to overwhelm and plunder.
AN ANSWER TO A NEED
Seeing an opportunity to satisfy the desire for money and combat, mercenaries began to offer protection services to mining operations. These mercenary contracts operate on a pay per-kill basis; depositing payment into the mercenary’s account instantly upon destroying a combative ship.
You have entered a mercenary contract with Cloud Energy Group (CEG) for protective services under a pay per-kill agreement.
You are responsible for your own ship, its components, and the safety of the mining facility. However, CEG has agreed to deliver, install, and repair any equipment you may purchase in your efforts to uphold this contract.
