Interstitial – Hammer Lord Quinn

Hammer Lord Quinn had a conversation with Nicholas Heratomi regarding the training for the Kern. Quinn is very unhappy about training and arming the Kern, but Nicholas dismisses his concerns and orders him to start the training.

Hammer Lord Quinn contacted a Hammer Trainer named Jonathan Qat to begin the training of the first 10 Kern. Quinn instructed Qat to teach the Kern several extra steps in any given exercise so that while the Kern will understand how to use the weapons, they would be an inferior fighting force to the Anvil or Hammer forces.

The Hammer Lord then proceeded to the Security Ops Center of the Prime corporation to find the head tech , Steve Cecil. Quinn proceeded to Intimidate Cecil into looking into rumors of recent hacking attempts from the Black Market. Cecil was able to locate signs that a hacker named Talos had breached security and planted a back door into the system. Talos also setup a program to siphon funds from various accounts into the account of Avin Tevison. Cecil promised to monitor the system for any more access attempts by Talos and to report them immediately.

Color Scene – GM

A woman carrying a sleeping child steps onto the loading platform of the Prime Corporation’s space station. When asked if she needs assistance, the woman exclaims, “Shhhh! Her Highness is sleeping”

Color Scene – Duke Sigismund Frost

Duke Sigismund Frost the First Speaker sits quietly in his quarters researching key figures of note. Ookla keeps guard silently outside his quarters. Frost begins a more detailed investigation on Vox Jenkins.

Interstitial Scene – Duke Frost, Vox Jenkins

Duke Sigismund Frost the First Speaker approaches a seemingly troubled Vox Jenkins and offers to assist with Vox’s recent troubles. Vox is getting ready to meet with members of the Prime Corporation regarding the Kerrn Labor Union’s recent strike. Frost offers Vox his resources and funding in exchange for a called-upon favor sometime in the future. Vox is very skeptical but accepts Duke Frost’s com device so that he may touch base with him after his meeting.

Interstitial Scene – Deborah Nagomi, Vox Jenkins

Debra Nagomi enters the large conference room with her team of administrators. Vox Jenkins sits alone at one end of the table. After some introductory remarks, Deborah dismisses her administrative team to talk to Vox “off the record”.

Vox complains of safety concerns and claims that 1 week ago, some Kerrn miners brutally killed ahuman tug transport driver because he was a Vaylen. Vox attributes this breach of security to poor screening procedures. Vox demands better security measures because the Kerrn deserve to live in a safe environment, free of Vaylen infestation.

Deborah refuses all offers and will not negotiate. Vox asks for a small security team to screen inbound workers but Deborah will not provide this or anything else. She needs Vox to instruct his people to go back to work and if Vox wants something in return, he will “have to take it himself”. The meeting concludes with Deborah saying that she will have someone get in touch with Vox.

Conflict – Vox, Nicholas Haritomi, Duke Frost

Vox Jenkins approaches the chambers of Nicholas Heratomi. He is not helping Vox either. He explains that Prime cannot afford any more security improvements. Vox decides to use the communicator to contact Duke Sigismund Frost.

When Frost arrives, he requests to telepathically link with Vox. Vox, still skeptical, accepts the link but only for the duration of the meeting. While linking with Vox, Frost convinces Vox to:

  • Ask for a 20 year contract for all current workers
  • Ask for military programs to train Kerrn to shoot, fight and keep out of trouble
  • Ask to have Deborah’s labor automation software abolished.

Vox and Frost continue to attempt negotiations with Nicholas which leads to a Duel of Wits. Vox wins the Duel of wits with the following outcomes:

  • Combat training for Kerrn has been granted
  • Prime Corp. will reward 20 year contracts for the current Kerrn laborers.
  • The automation software will continue to be developed. They have too much invested in it.
