The Marauders Mercenary’s have wondered endlessly through out Sirius taking on jobs that most would flee from! Our plight has always been one of fighting for the injustices done to others by evil. For we ourselves where also ravaged as a people our only crime was longing to find our place in this hostile universe. We started as a tight group of fighter pilots in need of a home to call our own, knowing the path would be long and full of trials. This is our story to tell let no one claim it as theirs for we defend our name with just vigil!
Volker, Gabriel, Hamlet and Wicked all would meet at Arkha base to consult with clients or each other. We had formed early relationships within Europa's boarders with all sorts of characters. Some not so welcomed for our knowledge of Admiral Caspire's use of a lethal nerve nanovirus that kills by homing in on the DNA codes of its victims. Our dislike of him brings us to secretly plot his demise. Hamlet just married Anne a Sirius high-ranking Diplomat that promises leverage in Europa's High Command.
Anne since birth has always known she was blood of the ancients bestowed with the ability to see glimpses of the future and sense the intentions of those around her. She also can communicate telekinetic-ally with certain beings and the wild creatures out side the city shields on her home world. She does not get out of the city as much as she would like and when off world she is in intense Diplomatic negotiations. Such as negotiating with Bretonia to use building a gate in Tartarus for open trading with Europa as a tool to bring down Admiral Caspire and end his terror! The Marauders will in secret partially fund the construction of the gate and refurbishing of Tisiphone as part of the deal.
After the arrest of Admiral Caspire a new Commander took his place on Tisiphone base Commander Augustus. There the new Commander has overseen the new gate and security details. Augustus has had a long history with the Marauders hiring them for a numerable amount of jobs. This is the political environment Commander Volker has and his colleges have been waiting a lifetime for. Everything is in play and the time is now for a major move in extending the Marauders longevity.
Anne now closes a deal with the Junkers that will allow The Marauders to build a base in Europan space and increase trade in Babylonia. All of Annes efforts to keep the Marauders and their allies system together as lead to some Diplomatic advance. The Junkers have been very pleased to help, However Anne is unsure whether for friendship or profit is there motive… a little of both perhaps! As her ability has been clouded as of late. Anne now has a new hope for her and the Marauders.
The Marauders base near completion and the joint security detail offered to Marauders at Tisiphone by Commander Augustus. Volker, Winnol, Gabriel, Hamlet, wicked and Anne finally see the dream of establishing The Marauders as a strong force against evil and protecting the less fortunate. The days ahead will be full of hard ships and trials but no one said keeping the peace would be easy a dauntless task at best. A communication is sent to Europa’s High Command, Volker sets out to meet them.
Volker meets with Europa's High Command to announce the Marauders allegiance as a Wing Corp in Europa's Navy. With heavy coverage by Rick Mave for SNN Commander Volker and the Europan Government make this announcement of their intention with the Marauders. “ We the Europan Government have added The Marauders Wing Corp to our Navy they are hereby in control of Babylonia's security and with full joint authority to see the best interest of the Europan Government is met by all! Thank you for your time all questions are to be forwarded to the summit meetings.”
The battleship food was worse that the stuff on the Hispania. I stared at the grey glob hanging off the end of my fork. It was meant to taste like organic meat from Malta, but after many years in storage, it ended up tasting like a cardamined pet. I checked the time. Not long till launch. I finished the food, somehow, and relaxed on the chair, waiting for Robin to arrive. When he did arrive, Brian was with him.
Two years ago the coalition Armed Forces were spotted around the Sirius sector. They drove the Alliance right down to the ground. It seemed like they were about to finally kill off there rival after 100s of years of fighting. But to both the Alliance and the Coalition were surprised when a mystical first one appeared from out of no-were.
The crippled sleeper ship Hispania arrived in Omicron Alpha almost 800 years ago. Its passengers named the planet Malta - a harsh place of acidic oceans, gray skies, and vast plains covered in a species of tall, thin, orange grass. They later learned that the grass could be rendered into a narcotic substance, that they called Cardamine.
hell mate, 1 year i stay in Omega 11 for diamond, 1 year i'm exposed to radiation, 1 year i think about real fresh pinacolada from Hawaii in Sigma-19, 1 year i try to repair my ship (booster and cruise has dead, i must remplace it).
but everything are not black and moron, i meet some guy from freital base and we have long speech about omega 11, history, things we can do here and more.
3 month ago a red hessian friend give me a wetsuits with new anti-radiation material, good stuff to explore the asteroid ring around the red giant sun "Wardoo go to explore wrecked ships in D-6 and E-6 sectors i buy infos about weapons in these ships".
the travel has not fun and cool, radiation, bounty hunterss think we are wanted...because our ID readercard don't like radiation and the recognize signal can't be read propely by hunters.
finally we reach the first wrecked ship, nothing except a
dead guy inside the *****pit but we found an letter from a station abandonned on deidus planet....so few years ago scientists try to understand deidus and her sand storm and more, but after 6 month they must come back to solarius station because all guy breathe too much small particles of irradiated sand, maybe air filter is the cause.
finally after two day the loot has rich, 10 canons, 25 units of h-fuel, 156 units of diamonds, 15 units of light arms, oxygen and more.
i hope with this loot and my 362 units of diamonds i repair my ship to leave of this system.
first thing i do i go to a medical center for a full radioactive decontamination,
in second have fun with escort girls in the best place of sirius (hawaii is a good choice i think).
in three sell my old ship stay few month in omicron alpha, a friend request me to search about origin of nomad and other research about hispania ship, maybe we found some loot and data in the computers.
for deidus planet i keep the letter and try to find the excactly position of station on the planet and maybe we try to reach it i'm worried about irradiated sand particles and i don't want to loose my lungs for nothing, good preparation is essential
so now i think i stay 6 more month in omega-11 for deidus project.... and 6 months for the recovery of loot and other information on deidus....no more
If your returning to Freelancer after a few years, when you install the game on WIn7 or Win 8 you probably will not get a Multiplayer ID, this prevents you being able to play Multiplayer. Here's an easy fix for those with the problem.
Finishing the first round of new stats format for all you "stats junkies". Theres nothing breath taking yet, just a nicer format and hopefully a better format for easy use.
Still some work to do, however, hopefully you can see the direction I'm going with this and agree its better....if not I'll scrap it..hehe
Anyway, heres the link, please post commects to this if you have an opinion.
