*On the Desert Planet Gabrat, home of the Gaabratska, a desert civilization within NGU space that revolves heavily on merchantism (also known as the Merchant Allience), A mysterious shadow lurks within the alleyways of Junar-ka, a mud-bricked city upon the surface of the barren wasteland. The shadowy figure walks into an adobe house. A gaabratska merchant emerges...*
Merchant: "Welcome, kind sir, welcome! We...have been expecting you. Our lookouts have been watching you since you got here, mr..."
Noob: "'Noob'...just call me noob..."
Merchant: "Ah-...very well, verrry well...so. I here you need something of value. Before I talk...the goods?"
*Noob opens the he has been carrying. A shower of gold credits shower onto the floor. The Gaabrat is awestruck...*
Noob: "I believe this will suffice...Now, what I want...is information. Information about the Saiv."
Merchant: "What!? Information on-....you're not planning to go past the Imperial line, are you?
Merchant: "Ha. Haha! Hahahahahahaha! Do you really want to die? Crossing that line has meant death for both the foolhardy and NGU forces! You cant possibly-"
*Noob throws the Gabrat Merchant against a wall. Guards rush in with guns aimed and readied on the intruder. Simultaneously, noob pulls out his bladerunner and activates it's blade*
Merchant: ".....you really are determined to cross that line? hmmm.....guards! Shu-Ach mei shluboya! Weapons down!"
*the guards do as such Noob puts away the Laser blade/Laser gun, not letting go of the Merchant*
"Okay...I'll tell you. There's a nebula on the eastern side of the Imperial Border that is unguarded. It's a large, unoccupied nebula. Completly unstable, full of stars and many black holes. Only a few ships made it through alive, they were small craft belonging to the Saiv Empire. Citezen ships, probably just a bunch of kids racing, judging by reports. It is a very dangerous and unstable place, but it's still possible for a small craft to make it through, if you're skilled enough..."
Noob: "What about a large ship, say, a battleship-sized trade ship?"
"......Now you're just speaking craziness! T-there's no way-"
"You lie. I can tell. Tell me how to get through it. NOW!!"
"Okay okay! I would usually have the customer pay much more for so much information, especially for this high-end stuff, but I like you. Even though you got a freaking death wish...'sigh'...alright.
There is a path that runs straight through there that the Empire has yet to notice. It's called "The Hardon Run". It's an are with the least gravitational interference. Go into hyperspace immediately before you reach the event horizon of blackhole K-7292. Once you've jumped, and you have to time it perfectly or else you'll run into a star or black hole, exit hyperspace and turn your craft 122* to the right and 42* downwards relative to the MWP (Milky Way Plane) , ignoring the pretty, blinding lights before you, and re-enter hyperspace. Wait exactly, and I mean EXACTLY, 3 minutes and 46.2456432 seconds and jump out, and I MEAN that! Make sure you have your shields and blast shields up, because you're going to stop right in front of a yellow-white star. After that, it's all a matter of escaping the gravity well, and any Saiv forces that may be there."
"Thank you, kind Merchant."
*Noob pours more gold credits on the floor*
Pa-Toa: "No no, kind sir! Thank you very much! and please, call me Pa-Toa!"
*Noob walks outside, where a transport and a woman with black hair and shurikens on her belt stood.*
Woman: "So, Cryx. Did the dirty merchant get what he wanted? And how much did you give the Gaabratska?"
Cryxis: "Wait...oh ha ha.....get in, Yin"
Yin: " 'Greed does not bring happines, only the wrath of the gods' That Gaabratska may pay the ultimate price soon..."
Cryxis: "I swear, those sayings of GrandMaster Samureye are going to get on my nerves one of these days..."
Yin: "...If it didn't already, you would not be complaining right now, would you?"
* The ship takes off, leaving the dusty adobe city and the wasteland planet it inhabited. A miracle anything was able to live here, let alone be the birthplace of the Gaabratska...*
