Ok, here's how my business works; I have information, about everyone. Some folks want it, some folks don't want you to have it. I keep records of every sector I visit, and what is located where. If you've got a hankering to hit someone, but can't seem to figure out where they are, give me a call. If I have the info, it can be yours for a price. Money-up-front for folks I trust less. I'll even give you the date at which I verified the data, and if you want more current data, well, that can be done. I also will sometimes solicit people. If I know someone's watching you, and I think you might want to know, I'll drop you a line. After all, its just being neighborly, and if you want to compensate me, that's reasonable. Now, a tricky part. If I show up in your logs, and you don't want a certain system getting out, I can be bought. I won't extort you, but if you come to me to pay for silence, that's something a bit more agreeable. For a negotiated price, your system is off my list of planets, and it STAYS off my list until someone pays me twice your original fee. I don't know if I'll do bidding back-and-forth, but I'd probably let you know if the protection lapsed. In addition, I have a side-business; unclaimed worlds. Tired of flying around with nowhere to go, but can't seem to find a place to call home? for 500k credits (again, taxes on your end) I can direct you to a nice, unclaimed planetary system with safe links. Right now I have a special, as I've found a single BINARY planet system. Act now and it can be yours for 1 million credits. I also have a good port catalogue, so if you lose a trade route, I'd be more than happy to direct you to a new one. Some folks might say I can't be trusted because of my ties with the bretheren. Thing is, though, I'm an honest man. I've never lied to anyone in this game, and I don't plan to start. Right now the Bretheren are good to me, and I don't cotton to informing on them out of principle. If their aggression gets out of hand, though, I'll likely leave and strike out on my own, at which time the circumstances under which I'll share information may change. Lastly, my insurance. Anyone attacks me, ALL my files on you go broadwave, and your business ain't welcome at my establishment. I've got no ambitions of empire, and y'all don't need my lebensrum to have a happy game, so tell it to the one legged man so he can bump it on down the road. I'll respect minefields and fighter screens, so I'd appreciate folks respecting mine. That being said, Chewie's Info-porium is now open for business.
