The Merchant of Death replied, "If you can get me a trade contract for 200 Nebula Gauss Cannons, and 200 Plasma Lances with the UtR Government I can offer you 20 of each as payment.
I don’t know how far afield the Outcasts head these days, but I can make a similar offer to the Fortress Hob Rhug Dol at the Oasis of AL’ya, the settlement at the Shadow Dome of Karov, and the Der’al Collective. 20 and 20 for each, and did I mention they create their own ammunition, so you would be beholden to no one. So all five would allow you to outfit an army of 100 olgogs. A merc company of that sized armed with these weapons would summon a hefty retainer from any lord in the region.
What I seek is pelts. Pelts from Ontors, Mal’ie and Mak Hoblok from Unen to Karov to Brez to Tla’loc’al. 200 pelts from each nation from their native species of choice. Tanned and prepared in traditional style of the region.
I have buyers up north who will pay actual gold for them.
I don’t even care if they are stripped from animals who are rezzed afterwards, just need them to last at least one year in the house of wealthy folks up north. Did you know most Colonials have never even seen a Mak Hoblok. And the closest thing to an Ontor they may face in the wilds of the Colonies is a Snatcher, not even a quarter of the size. "
