Thanks. I know it's just a game, but it seriously peeved me all the same to see those slaves floating there boxed up. The very idea of slave trade disgusts me.

A round of drinks on me, it's a day worth celebrating and I can definitely afford it!

You might remember my trip to Isence, where I picked up a bunch of folks and freed them? Well, I heard from one of em today. Well, her sister. Remarkable lady, works for Amnesty InterGal. I didn't ask, but I think she joined to try and find her sister. So, that was a good start to the day.

She invited me to meet up in Teorge, a mid Ag near my home cluster. Nice little place. She was appreciative, to the tune of 750 creds. But that was just the first part of the surprise party.

I already mentioned the lady works for Amnesty, so we got a hatred of slavers in common. She's a little less, ah, hands-on than me though. Which is fine, y'know? But here's where the real party starts. Well, sorta. Technically I was crashing someone else's party after that.

This lady tells me there's a slaver hideout on the far side of the sun from Teorge Prime. She asks me if picking up the slaves and popping the rock sounds like a job for me.

Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life, or so an old saying goes. Well, today I made two thousand creds for a little hunting excursion. On top of the bounties for those dumb slavers without the good sense to run when they saw me.

Yep, today was a good day.
