Getting Started

[ Okay, to get started I decided that I needed to know when the "annual maintenance" was due.  I figured that Engineer Scott Grok's efforts would have pushed the date forward at bit . . . so I rolled two d12s and would take the higher for the month when the annual maintenance would be due . . . and rolled 11 and 4 . . . so it will be due on Day 330.]

Week 1           Cresta 

[Jonas]   While looking for a speculative cargo, a shipment of 80 tons of Dyes was available for 360,000 credits . . . which we could afford (we started with 465,000 cr), so I snapped it up because we would be headed to Carver's Range next where the dyes should sell at a bit of a premium.

I was able to pick up an additional 15 tons of Bulk Cargo to fill our hold.  As for passengers, until I had a chance to learn more about our new Stewards I didn't want to overbook . . . but I was able to get 8 Middle and all 8 Low Passage berths filled.  (income of 234,000)

Need to re-do all math figures -- above & below

As a Class C port, all that was available was unrefined fuel (cost 12,000) which we then ran through our on-board refining process.  Accumulated Docking Fees added up to (2d12 weeks) 900 credits.  Finally stocking up on our supplies cost an additional 30,000 credits; and our "maintenance" expenses were about 1,800 credits.  Crew salaries are not due yet.  (Total expenditures including spec cargo = 404,700 credits -- leaving a ship's fund of 294,300 credits).
