This game marks the start of maneuver 3. The players have decided to use the Flak option for this maneuver. Our Defense (60% of the die pool) will be to get Vox elected. Our offense (40% remaining die pool) will be to remove Lawson as the CEO of Prime Corp.
The GM decided to use Gambit for this maneuver. The Vaylen want to want to start importing Naiven onto Prime One.

Interstitial – Talos
Talos contacted Avin and advised him that the package had been delivered, and they discussed their options. They also reached out to Vox to have a palaver.
Building – Duke Frost
Talos’ delivery unknown to him, Frost approched Torr and sensed that he is worried about something. Frost advised Torr that the Duke represents several “interests” who feel that Vox should be the leader of the Kerrn. To that end, Torr should gracefully drop out of the race for Governor, for the good of his kinfolk. Frost assures Torr that he will still have a seat at the table and Vox’s ear in matters martial. Torr, shaken by Talos’ packet, agrees to step down without much debate. Torr tells Frost he will make his concession speech the following meridian.
As soon as Frost left Torr’s presence, he contacted Vox telepahically and relayed the news of Torr’s decision to step down. Frost also tells Vox about the agreement that Torr will be accepted into the new government as an advisor. Vox, in turn, told Avin and Talos of the good news.

Following the trail back to the source, the maid discovers Eloise encased in a plastic box suspended in the thick slime.

After the meetings agenda is reviewed, Quinn presents the evidence that Lawson is supplying Vox’s opponent with illegal drugs; the evidence that Eloise is captive in his personal quarters; and, reiterates that Lawson has not done anything to shore up defenses against the possible Vaylen threat and that he has endangered Prime Corp’s relationship with the Darikahn Empire. Quinn demands that Lawson immediately step down before he further damages Prime’s position.
Lawson agrees and immediately heads for his quarters. Quinn calls for a security detail to meet him at Lawson’s quarters and departs.
