Babcock & Sons (46)

Postby Augur » Thu Apr 03, 2008 4:53 pm

A modest import/export business, Babcock & Sons deals almost entirely in vehicles, high-grade electronics, energy weapons, fuel and other material with military applications . Not the high end, manufactured products marketed by the big arms companies like Northern Gun, but low-end items such as spare parts, components, tool kits, batteries, ammunition, E-Clips, food rations and any of a hundred other odds and ends that tend to go unnoticed to all but quartermasters. In the city of MercTown where many combat outfits choose to organize, refit and gather supplies, Babcock and Sons enjoys a fair amount of success.

As you enter the store, (open only during daylight hours), you see a variety of mercenaries and adventurers browsing its shelves purchasing all manner of hi-tech and low tech adventuring goods from food to S.D.C. ammunition and everything in between. Behind the counter sits a gruff, battle-worn man in his mid-40s and his two younger sons. Careful observation will reveal that humans tend to receive goods at slightly better prices while obvious D-Bees and magic-users are charged much more for the same goods.

MOD INFO: Last year, Babcock & Sons managed to pull in about 600,000 credits in profit. Not bad, especially considering that this business is nothing more than an elaborate cover. The owner, James Babcock, is an undercover espionage agent for the Coalition States, as are his two, supposed sons, Daniel (Sergeant Daniel Smith) and Junior (Lieutenant James Samal). Babcock and "the Boys," are part of the passive surveillance operation suggested by Major Jameson Brock. All the men have to do is cozy up to mercs and adventurers and keep their eyes and ears open. Posing as importers of military materials and being known to purchase used Coalition Army gear, gives the agents access to many of the merc companies, adventurers and bandits who come to town looking to buy, trade or sell military goods. As a buyer of CS gear, the trio can identify groups who may specialize in hitting Coalition forces as well as active Retribution Squads from Tolkeen and other terrorist bands with an axe to grind against the CS. Even the Black Market and Fixer Jones have not caught on to these Coalition agents, and believe they are legitimate business people and Coalition-haters.
