In the Name of Science

In the Name of Science - Runes (1 of 4)


Background:Look at that ugly structure over there. They call it the Culture Recess and its solemn decay fits my mood perfectly these days. Once I was a proud member of the Sister's research efforts. I had my own lab and staff and every day I woke up with joy in my heart for what wonders I would discover. But the Sister's are a bickering lot; don't let the outer facade of calm and serenity fool you. Behind closed doors you can find fierce rivalry and constant jostling for a higher place in the pecking order. I was adept at playing their games of backstabbing and politics, but not adept enough. One day I found myself out of a job.

I was offered a lowly assistant's position on an insignificant little project. I refused to take it and have been a renegade sister since. But I still hope to regain my former stature within the Sisterhood. If I'm to have any hope of ousting my rivals I must make a crashing entrance, showcasing something magnificent. So here, in the shadow of this ruined monument to past follies, I aim to rebuild my career. I will make a discovery so grand, so momentous, that the Sister's will be forced to accept me back in on my own terms.

Yet I'm finding it hard to do this alone. Material things have never interested me, so I haven't squandered my life savings on something trivial like most. Now I can put my money and my belongings to good use. I'm interested in hiring pilots with the skills and talents to aid me in my task.

If you're interested, I want to hire you for a small job that is too dangerous for a mere scientist such as myself. Over in the Traun system you can find the ruins of an old Nefantar fortress. The Angel Cartel currently holds it and has launched an effort to restore it. Just before I left the Sisters one of our informants within the cartel reported that the repair drones in the old fortress discovered a stash of ancient tablets with strange, indecipherable markings on them. The Angels haven't bothered with the tablets beyond storing those the drones return with in their repair stations.

Now here's the interesting part. A few years ago I was working on a project that compelled me to dig through the ancient history of the Nefantar tribe, from times long before the Amarrians ever arrived in Minmatar space. While traveling in Hjoramold, the tribe's ancestral home, I came upon several tablets with runic inscription, filled with very thought provoking information. I can't go into details here, but it is the key to my work.

I suspect that the tablets the Angels discovered in Traun might be more of these runic tablets. If so, then those tablets could give me a breakthrough in my research efforts. I need someone well versed in the art of war to retrieve those tablets in Traun for me. I will reward you well if you're willing to take this on.

In the Name of Science - Stakes (2 of 4)


Background:My research is going well. My decision to hire independent pilots has paid off really well. But I fear it might also have backfired somewhat by putting too much heat on me. The Sisters have become aware of my whereabouts and what I'm trying to achieve. While I doubt it, one of my rivals could decide to dent my efforts my sending some thugs here to rough me up and destroy my work. The physical risk does not concern me all that much, but if I lose my work I have nothing.

I always like to be on the safe side, so I've made backup copies of my research. I need to get them to a safe place. First, I considered placing them in a depository box in a bank, but me hiring such a box is too easy to track down. Maybe I'm being paranoid, but you never know. So instead I've opted to hire a low-key storage room in a remote system to stash my backup copies in.

Obviously, I can't go there myself, I might be followed. But they would never bother with someone such as you, so you're an ideal candidate for the job. Take my stash to the Ragnarg system and by the time you return I'm sure I will have something more interesting, less paranoid, for you to do.
