Mays pointed you to the barrack where you can find a bed to sleep on and eat a bit.

***next day***

You wake up and pack your things and head up to the briefing room where the team will flesh out the last details before moving out to the Raven. Your team is composed of 7 members: you, Alvarin, Mays, two extra soldiers and two engineers.

The briefing is just about to start.

(you really are an easy player to DM so far :P)

Mays enter the room and the briefing start.

''All right, listen up, our goal is to reach the Raven and fix it enough so it can repulse to base''

''We expect some resistance from the drones, intel isn't able to give us any precise numbers or indication so far. They can be detected using short range scanners, but that's pretty much it.''

''Ensure that you are ready to leave in an hour. Any questions?''

Suddenly, you have a little sentiment of apprehension that is buzzing through your stomach. However, you are unable to explain why.

-Unfortunately, we don't have the man power to send scouts too far from the base. We only have limited intel beyond 1 km around the base. I heard Utwig have premonitive and limited psychic capabilities is that true? Either way, we need to be careful out there. We all want to make it back in one piece.

"Psychic capabilities... Indeed, the Utwig does, to some small degree. The Arilou reach far higher in natural psionic abilities, though. Once again, I wish that The Ultimate would be here to guide me, and shed light on the events at hand, but that is just wishful thinking."

"On another note, you would not happen to have any Utwig-made vessels in this settlement? I am not planning on staying here forever, so knowing where to find a ship which I could actually fly would be most useful." (Both for leaving once my business here is concluded, and for any "emergency escapes" in case that would be needed.)

I'm afraid not, in case of immediate evacuation, we have two Cruisers standing by plus the Raven once it is repaired. However, I must remind you that you are the acting captain of the Raven. It is not a difficult ship to fly and it is still under your command.

Are you all ready to depart?

Let's meet up in thirty minutes at the north gate. Good luck all!

(If you have any preparation, equipment or anything now is the time)

(I just assume that the "two padded armor" which we brought on the hover platform didn't get sold with the rest of the stuff.)

[Equip the Cloth of Trade and Equipment Usage]

Firstly: See if I can find a place to quickly sell 10 of my food rations, if none can be found then just drop them instead.

Secondly: Pick up and equip the two padded armor from earlier.

Finally: Move to the "gathering point"
