Thieves #1: Crimson Star (Bounty Hunter ship)

OK: They are not technically thieves but you tell that to the person who just had their ship repossessed.

Story: Ravi Naidu is an experienced bounty hunter. He specializes in the capture and return of criminals and bail jumpers. He tries to operate within the law as far as he can but as you know, the line between legal and illegal gets blurry at times. He is partners with Kevarn Oosthuizen, who is a specialist Ship Tracer. The synergies between their two specialties makes them an effective team. Ravi is single but has friends he sees in various ports of call.

You lost a starship? Have a bad mortgage on a Free Trader? Then RK Collections Ltd is your first port of call. Kevarn is an experienced ship tracer. He can track a ship across sectors if necessary. He is partners with Ravi Naidu and has contacts in spaceports across the sector. Kevarn is married and has two children on his homeworld.

Their ship, the MV Crimson Star, is a converted Type S Scout/Courier. Two staterooms on the main deck have been modified as brigs. Another brig has been installed in the cargo bay as well as three low berths for troublesome prisoners. Other than that it is a standard Type S capable of Jump 2 and 2 G Acceleration.

Possible Scenarios:

1. RK Collections hires the PCs to return a repossessed ship to the financial institution that owns it. The ex-owners are none to happy and together with some friends try to get the ship back.

2.  Due to a past indiscretion (perhaps a result of one of those life events rolled in character creation) there is an outstanding warrant open on one of the PCs in your party.  RK Collections apprehend the PC while the party is on liberty at the local Startown. How do you go about freeing your comrade?  Can you argue a good case at an extradition hearing or will you resort to other means?

3.  RK Collections has a big job and a risky bounty. They require some extra muscle to act as backup.  Interested?

  1. #2 & #3– RK Collections needs some additional help for a big bounty. ‘Course, you’ll have to bunk in the brigs, y’know.

    “What do you mean the doors won’t open? Oh, right. Remember that little job you did? Yeah, that one. There was a witness. Next stop, Planet Purgatory…”
