Weekly Expense Report for Applied Package Solutions - Blissful Sarlacc Division

Weekly expense report for Applied Package SolutionsBlissful Sarlacc division

Initial business venture – Tibanna Gas
Objective – Complete delivery to Dantooine
Profit – lots (technical term)
Unforeseen costs – 2,000 credits (Tibanna Cleaner)
Running totals – -2,000 credits
Expected payout – lots (technical term)

Initial negotiations to obtain product proved fruitful and not aggressive. Uneventful venture to cloud city marred by minimal Rodian annoyances (minimal meaning zero financial cost. Reminder: thank Zeb and Fenix… or was it Fawkes… later). Product obtained after Telet administered his technical services FREE OF CHARGE (Reminder: strongly suggest Telet charge next time. Time is money.) and transported cargo to ship. I applaud Lemmy for his strength and resistance in this time of trial for him. He did not go to any of the casinos on Cloud City while we were away (Note: this does not constitute qualification for a bonus.).

Ladies, Water, and Gravity – oh my!
Continued Objective – Complete delivery to Dantooine
Secondary Objective – Woo ladies—errr obtain additional profit
Profit – unknown
Unforeseen costs – 100 credits, 3 days (Rescue/refuel)
Unforeseen profit – 150 credits (Pod Racing—errr calculated risk payout)
Running totals – -2,000 (previous), -100 = -2,100 credits
Expected payout – lots (technical term)

Unforeseen circumstances have led to delays in delivery but potential alternate avenues of profit. The Blissful Sarlacc has entered into a business relationship with the Sapphire Singularity in a mutually beneficial security contract until we reach Daalang. In exchange for rescue, Sumi Doim (captain, hot—errr, human), Lebara Black (crew, Zeltron), and Trance Inkan (engineer, Twi’lek) have agreed to accompany us to Daalang. Although initially cautious at first, this venture has already resulted in personal profit and most certainly will help to ensure that the promised “lots” of profits will remain secured (Reminder: thank Trance for her spot on recommendation for her calculated risk payout choice. Was equally profitable as Lemmy’s recommendation.). “Blasters” appears rather happy after his participation in the calculated risk payout endeavor, but I do not know why. Does 50 credits really make him that happy (Reminder: research whether “Blasters” might be happy with less salary. Did you see how ecstatic he was after winning only 50 credits?! You would think he won more than all of us combined or something!).

-Telet note: Nolin, you do know that you can delete things after you type them, right? “Errr” does not delete nor hide anything you’ve said previously.

You’ve got starships in my gravity well – You’ve got our blaster bolt in your starship as well
Continued Objective – Complete delivery to Dantooine
Secondary Objective – Woo ladies—errr obtain additional profit
Tertiary Objective – Fill remaining cargo hold with tradable commodities
Profit – 2,500 credits (forget-me-not)
Unforeseen, foreseen costs – -30,000 credits (Commodities for trade at Daalang)
Running totals – -2,100 (previous) +2,500 (forget-me-not) -30,000 (commodities) = -29,600 credits
Expected payout – lots (technical term) + 20,000 to 70,000 (commodities, price dependent)

It would appear “Blasters” made much more than 50 credits from our last calculated risk payout endeavor (Reminder: determine his secret for making 700 credits appear out of thin air. This could be useful.). Our mutual security contract with the Sapphire Singularity continues to be profitable. With their assistance, we successfully navigated a gravity well and avoided certain death. Telet ensured proper navigation and confirmed our position, leveraging the power of the law on our side since we were obviously in the right and those scumbags had drifted into our hyperspace lane. “Blasters” did what he was known for and created an opportunity for an ultimatum and profit with a well-placed shot to the opposing forces (Reminder: don’t talk with “Blasters” when he is carrying said nickname.). 100% accuracy, 2,500 credit profit from “forget this ever happened” costs, and OH GOD I THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO DIE BUT WE LIVED—errr, and he ensured that we survived the encounter.

Future stop for refuel presented an opportunity to fill the remainder of the cargo hold with trade goods. Attempted to talk the dealer down to 28,000 credits failed resulting in 30,000 credits costs. However, this is within acceptable margins. Surely they need water on Aridus, right (Note: check commodity demand BEFORE buying commodity next time)?
