New Gibson Derelict Hunters Wanted

Hello hunters. Not too easy to come by malfunctioning scrap that's whole enough to make it work again, but we know it's out there. I know a lot of you have jobs and lives you can't ignore. But in your spare time, you can join the treasure hunt.  Post if you dare.

Bogus. Admin, delete. Even if you could find a derelict, NT would take it away from you in a heartbeat. They own this system.

They're out there waiting to be found.

(Several snapshots of New Gibson orbit are uploaded. The images show the date 8/3/2462 at the bottom, and a timestamp of 14:22. Despite the claims of NG DHUNTER, there are no visible derelicts in any of the photographs, but the zoom level and amount of space covered by each photograph would make it impossible to see one anyway.)

I think I got a hit off of one of the detectors I bought in the back alley. That fellr said it would work. I dunno where DHUNTER is, but if anybody wants to go dhunting after work, let's do it. I got EVA training, can teach.

Have you ever even seen a derelict? No? Because they don't exist!

((This is a metagame and side story I am currently developing. In terms of game impact, very minimal, except our characters would have some familiarity with each other on shift because of this shared hobby.  The basic premise is to form a team that goes searching for derelicts in their spare time. Right now, each station shift, I am doing a random roll between 1 and 1000. If it hits 500, a derelict will be found. Then I suppose there will be rolls to fix it room by room, perhaps 1-100, catastrophic failure, blow a room, if no rooms, destroy the derelict, 101-750 fail to fix a room, no progress. 751-1000 fix a room. Obviously, with more people comes a higher chance of success. As of now, the interval or "tick" I am using is every game round played, I roll for Guy Blaze. If others join, I suppose I will roll for you or we'll honor system it, I will edit this post as appropriate to add info or respond IC / OOC.  If our team gets stupidly large, there's also a chance for some roleplay to evolve from NT or supervisors disapproving of the hobbyists or having them report their off-work activities. ))

((Also, keep in mind the expense of the hobby should keep your character very interested in staying employed.))

((You are looking for other players to respond, yes? Side note: What does NG mean?))

((I would love it if people did. I’m hopefully gonna play more Guy Blaze tonight. I took it from the perspective of being a New Gibson forum so though it’s public I used it to mean New Gibson. A kind of way to introduce the posters anonymously / semi anonymously.))

Hej. I saw this while scrolling. I would be interested in helping, but might need a bit of warning time wise.

Great. Name's Guy. I've been pourin' basically everything I make into this. Haven't found anything yet, but I don't think this watcher fella's joking. Just wish the images uploaded were a little less grainy. I've been off a couple of days. Hoping to catch a shift, make some money, and get somebody to take us up there to look again soon. Who knows? With enough eyes on, maybe we'll actually see something up there that isn't total junk. Like I said, I got a new job. If you see me in NT Net, feel free to shoot me a message. Mention the NTPN, we'll get started! 

((With the general idea I've laid out, I'm also happy for feedback or ways to modify this. I'm keeping track of rolls made here, I rolled us a little into the future because I don't anticipate being able to play for the next 40 hours.))

I'm Lilly. I'll look out for you on the net. If its orbital transport you need, I'm living on a small ship currently docked on Biesel. Don't have the equipment to take photos though. Let mig know if that's any help.

((General idea seems good, and in terms of when I'm on, it usually around 7-10 BST (Currently, that goes back to GMT in a month or so), so from what I can gather, we might never actually have a shift with us both on))
