    • "What do I think of Maxergy? I guess a job's a job right? I mean we're just being paid to protect Maxergy's stuff like Henry said.  Nothing else concerns us. Besides, isn't it a little late to worry about it?" Jake says with his usual bravado. However its clear he isn't really sure he believes that or not. Looking almost unsettled by Hannu's question and its implications. Rather sheepishly rubbing the back of his head. In his own black and white world he was always the gallant hero at odds with some of the more grisly things he'd done in the past. Contradictions he generally tried not to dwell on. "As far as I'm concerned none of "us" should be out over on this side of the world but..." He shrugs." That's why they pay us." At hearing Dennis served with the Foreign Legion he gives a warm, goofy smile as he nods respectfully towards the other man. Reciting, in very badly accented French, "Honneur et Fidélité" and makes an effort to sit up a little straighter.
    • Lucius raised his eyebrows. "Dennis, man, you were with the Légion étrangère? Respect. I won't mention it again in your presence." He closed his eyes and nodded to him. His eyes popped open again when Andreia, Adam, Hannu, and Henry began discussing Qatari current events and Maxergy. "See, that's what I don't get about what the Saudis and the others are accusin' the Qataris of doin'. The Muslim Brotherhood is a Sunni Muslim organization founded in Egypt. The Iranians are Shiites. They're like oil and water, day and night. Besides, Shia Muslims barely make up somethin' like ten percent of the population. The Qataris were supportin' the Saudis in attacking the Shia Houthis in Yemen. Combined with the belligerence of Iran, there's no plausible motivation for Qatar to support Iran or terrorists. Ya know what I think? Somebody has skin in that game, and wanted to break up the coalition between the Saudis and the Qataris. What better way than to fabricate some evidence, let it slip to the right ears, and the whole works start comin' apart. "See, when I was a kid, I used to get accused of all kinds of shit by damn liars. Whenever somethin' was missin', some mofo would whisper that I was seen near it. I spent my grade school years turnin' out my pockets, openin' my locker for teachers to search it, all kinds of degradin' humiliation. I know it was racially motivated, but nobody but brothers and sisters would understand. I didn't fight it, because my mama told me not to, and I saw what happened to brothers and sisters that did." He tapped an index finger on his temple. "You gotta use your head, not just to survive, but to make your life better. That's why I'm gonna keep an open mind about the Qataris. Not judge a book by its skin. Maybe Maxergy is the same way. Shit, who am I kiddin'. They're a corporation, it's all about gettin' the oil money locked up first. Dig?" The irony of not being judgmental about Qatar while dismissing the oil company as only concerned with lucrative relations with the country didn't seem to phase Lucius.
    • Henry stayed silent at the mention of Afghanistan, he had never been and had gotten shit about it from both family and friends.  Very few aunts and uncles understood that an Airman with severe airsickness in the Security Forces wouldn't be sent to kick in doors or drop bombs on the 'Al Kaidahs'.  He sipped more water, emptying the bottle and smashing it before recapping so it'd stay smashed.  "Long as they'ah not having me shoot innocents or protesteahs, I got no problem with em.  Other than that all I got to say is money talks, and oil is still big money.  No Oil, no gas, no tractahs or fishing boats, no trucks or trains hauling food, no fuel to keep the house warm in wintah."  His mouth was already dry and he was eyeing another bottle of water.
    • So, while I finish up the weapons list, enjoy this map of the two galaxies for this project!

    • (And Im sorry for not running the game. Im also finding a game of hunter so I was a bit desiccated.) Adam was chuckling with with Lucius and  Jake about how esay the job will be and A-stan till Dennis told them not bring up the subject. “Sorry there boss …… I did mean to bring back some bad memories. I had a bad time there too. I’ll just leave it at that.” “Lets just change the subject then.” Andreia said while putting away her phone. Before anyone can say more, Hannu finally broke his silents. “  So what do you think about the companywe are work for?  Maxergy I mean.” “What about Maxergy?”Adam replied. “We been with many oil companies before.” Hannu shook his. “Yes i know but have you herd of what trouble this country been in this past few years? They lost there diplomatic ties after this country was supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran.* Sure, It got it’s trust from its numbers back resonantly, but why would Maxergy would come back here so early?”
